About Us

Monkey Media is a unique hybrid, combining the best aspects of a trade publisher and content marketing agency.

Monkey Media began in 2012 with the aim of bringing niche industries and communities together by providing forums where people can share knowledge and information.

Chris Bland, Founder and Managing Director, has been working in trade publishing since 2003. Chris has seen how a strong trade publication could help give voice to an industry and become the trusted source of information for people working in organisations in that field. But he has also seen how quickly the industry can change. Through Monkey Media, he has built a company able to continually respond to that change by focusing on two central things; audience and content.

This focus has taken Monkey Media from a single print magazine to four major brands (Utility, Infrastructure, Energy, Pump Industry), all with their own high traffic online news portals, quarterly print magazines, niche events and premium subscription products.

It has also given rise to our Content Marketing division. The demand for quality content and marketing services has increased and we put our expert publishing team to work for business large and small to help them become thought leaders and content creators in their own right.

While the way the world communicates has changed rapidly over the last 20 years, the need for tailored, quality industry information has not.  At the core of the services we offer is our team’s in-depth knowledge of the industries we work in and our ability to put that expertise to work for your business.


To have a positive impact on the industries we work in, by providing the best communication tools to bring businesses together.
